Daughters of Norway–Eva Nansen Lodge presents Norwegian singer/songwriter Ann-Marita Garsed in concert at 1:00 PM, Saturday, Apr. 13, at Faith Lutheran Church, 10395 University Ave., West Des Moines. A reception for the artist will follow the concert. The concert is free; a freewill offering will be collected.
Singer, songwriter, and performer Garsed’s road to success has led her on a winding path from a humble upbringing in rural Norway, to Sweden via Iowa, on to Los Angeles and Australia, and then back to California. She has proven to be a remarkably versatile artist, with her genre-defying brand of country/Americana. Her concert, A Journey Across Oceans in Song, will feature her own versions of traditional and contemporary Norwegian folk songs.
